    Another surprise gift from the publicity peeps. "Wuthering Heights" with robots? We shall see.

    I recieved this book from a good reads giveaway, im really lucky that i did. The charachters in this book are all robots, ALL. i found this bit very original and distinct from other books. Ive heard that its a retelling of wuthering heights but I've never really read it so But now that I've read barren cove I'll read wutheing heights soon. Sapien (a robot) is a relic of a bygone age, searching for meaning in a world where his outdated allegiances to a time long past have left him isolated and ho [...]

    This book is about a family of (mostly) robots living at a beach house called Barren Cove. It takes place at some future period in which robots have largely supplanted humans. The book is supposed to be a retelling of Wuthering Heights, which I remember loving many years ago, but of which I remember few details. However, I don't believe that I would have loved a book about a group of child abusing, suicidal, sociopathic rapists and murderers. Unfortunately, that describes the characters in this [...]

    Das Cover und der Titel haben mich sofort an den Film "Der 200 Jahre Mann" mit Robin Williams erinnert - und meine Erwartung war ein ähnliches Thema, dass sich mir aber nicht so recht erschließen konnte.Das war ein Buch, dass mich etwas irritiert zurückgelassen hat und bei dem ich mir nicht sicher bin, ob ich alles verstanden bzw. den Sinn begriffen habe. Philosophische Gedanken von Mr Sapien habe ich erwartet und erzählt wurde mir eher die Geschichte über Barren Cove und seine Bewohner: ei [...]

    A suicidal early generation robot, rents the beach house below an estate and spends his vacation intruding into the tragic life of the owners, a family of sorts that consists of several late generation robots and an aged bedridden human. The protagonist is torn between admiration and contempt for the new generations of robots which outperform him and mock him, and the frail humans who made him yet have fallen into a stoic decline. The protagonist's exploration of his hosts' past boils down to a [...]

    I read Barren Cove in a day, mostly in one evening sitting. From the first line to the last, I loved every page, the synopses of my brain lighting up in strange and wonderful ways. The story is fresh and original. It is a sci-fi literary novel perfectly written and plotted. The characters distinct, for all their being robots. Yes, robots. And I quickly noted that the story line was a retelling of a 19th c. classic novel. Brilliant!Sapien rents a beach house to get away from the city and for an o [...]

    Ariel S. Winter has been a finalist for several prestigious book awards, and IMHO it’s just a matter of time until he takes one of those awards home. When I saw Barren Cove, I was immediately drawn to the quirky graphic book cover. It made me curious to learn what Barren Cove was about. I have to admit that I took a leap of faith on this novel, pretty much based on that odd cover, and I’m glad I did…and once I began to read it, the cover suddenly made sense. Barren Cove is science fiction [...]

    Spare of prose, delving immediately into the existential crisis of several robots in a near future dystopia. A quick read, and quite addictive despite no single reason for being so. A robot discovers that proficiency is no substitute for inspiration and questions the meaning of life without humanity to give him purpose. I would enjoy a more expounded version of this story told from several perspectives. Was the old gardening robot a fully converted cyborg human?

    Mr. Sapien rents a cabana by the sea but the family living in the main house perched on the cliff above becomes a distraction from his attempt at being solitary.This is basically a domestic drama with gothic overtones that features a whole lot of robots. Philosophical robots, at times.What happens when the robots are smart enough to make more robots? Why should a robot be made to look like a human? What do the robots think about that?Do you like moody seaside landscapes and robot/human ethics? T [...]

    Mr. Sapien ist einer der letzten von Menschenhand gebauten Roboter. In einer Welt, in der die Menschen so gut wie ausgestorben sind und Roboter sich selbst reproduzieren können, wird er seines Daseins langsam überdrüssig. Er zieht von der Großstadt aufs Land um den Sinn seiner Existenz zu finden, aber ob ihm die Bevölkerung vor Ort dabei helfen kann?Für mich ist "Mr. Sapien träumt vom Menschsein" ein mittelmäßiges Buch. Es ist schnell und einfach zu lesen, hat mich aber nicht wirklich b [...]

    A retelling (in a way) of Wuthering Heights, but that shouldn't weigh too heavily in your decision to read this tale. A quick read, and a well written story, which is better the less you know beforehand. Many others have had their say as to its content and meaning so I will just say that I think this says more about the universality of personalities, emotions, and social interactions, beyond merely human.

    The story is so well written, it has a unique idea, I've never read anything like it before, yes there are robots and stuff but nothing like that. The feelings in this story are so intense, and I cried a couple of times. It evokes many feelings; I felt depressed, angry, and sad. But I am disappointed by it's ending; the ending resolved nothing!And now after two months and reading about 13 fantastic novels after reading this book, but I still think about it. It left its mark on me.

    There is something about exploring humanity through something so explicitly inhuman that is really powerful here. Even with recognisable elements from its source material (Wuthering Heights), it still feels new and alien and tremendously moving, and I find I love it very much.

    Hands down, one of my favorite books of all time. This is one of those books that I read and wish so badly I had written it. A brilliant book that seamlessly reconciles human drama with science fiction. It has the complexity and devastation of Great Expectations and Wuthering Heights with the fantastical possibilities of the future. Through robots, Winter explores the human condition in a spectacularly haunting way: where we come from, in what image we are made and modeling, and where we choose [...]

    Mr. Sapien steht kurz vor der Abschaltung und so macht er sich auf nach Barren Cove, um dort der Hektik der Stadt zu entfliehen. An der englischen Küste angekommen, stößt er auf seine Vermieter und ihre ungewöhnliche Art des Zusammenlebens. Die Asimovs haben ein Geheimnis. Unter ihnen soll der letzte Mensch leben. Für Mr. Sapien, einen bekennenden Menschenfreund, natürlich ein Ansporn, sich näher mit der Familie zu beschäftigten.Als ich den Klappentext las, dachte ich, dass mich ein Roma [...]

    I picked up this recent release at the library. Some people will really like/love this novel and some won't. I'm somewhere in the middle, but on the like side and I admire the construction of this. The cover of the book caught my attention, even if it is a little off-putting, but the flyleaf and comments on the back of the book made me want to give this a try. Well done literary science-fiction is rather rare in my experience.Some mild spoilers here.This is a dark gothic tale of sorts set in the [...]

    An intriguing book that takes place in a world of the future where humans are dying out and robots are the dominant "life form." That's just the thing . . . are they "life"? The robots think so--at least, most of them. The story is told through the inhabitants of an ancient estate called Barren Cove where Sapien goes to find a quiet place to think. He becomes interested in the history of the place and the beings that live there, but human and robot. He considers the past as well as the current s [...]

    Barren Cove by Ariel S. Winter is pitched as “a retelling of Wuthering Heights with robots”. I’ve never read Wuthering Heights (seen the movie though) and I’m not a big fan of robots, that being said, I still enjoyed Barren Cove. I read this knowing nothing about the story, but afterwards hearing that it was a retelling of Wuthering Heights I looked back and from what I do know of Bronte’s tale I could see the connection. In Barren Cove we’re introduced to a world where humans are an [...]

    This book is apparently a reimagining(?) of Wuthering Heights which I haven't actually read. It was well-written, but I think, overall, I liked it more for its world-building and concepts than I liked the actual story itself. All of the characters seemed so conflicted and snarled-up inside that, by the end, I found all of them unlikable as people. Maybe that was part of the point? I dunno. It left me feeling pretty bleak. Like the Singularity had so much potential in the book's universe, but the [...]

    This is the story of a broken, dysfunctional family with a thin veneer of sci-fi on top. I didn't think the sci-fi aspects were taken nearly far enough, so much of this book felt hollow and poorly thought out. I probably would have enjoyed it more if it had been humans in the future instead of androids.

    I didn’t know when I started Barren Cove, by Ariel S. Winter, that it would be the second book in a row that dealt with existential crisis. The difference between this book and The Elegance of the Hedgehog is that the protagonists in Barren Cove are almost all robots. Winter’s brief tale is a retelling of Wuthering Heights. But, you know, with robotsRead the rest of my review at A Bookish Type. I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley for review consideration.

    I received this from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.Okay, so this is a retelling of Wuthering Heights with robots. I have never read Wuthering Heights, so a lot of the similarities and nuances probably went right over my head. However, even without the proper context, this is an interesting story that I enjoyed. I had some trouble figuring out when things were occurring, as the chapters jumped around in time. Overall, an interesting science fiction take on Wuthering Heights that you [...]

    I thought I would enjoy this book but the setting was bleak, the characters never interested me and nothing much happens. I was also somewhat confused by the way the backstory was presented.The book is set in the future where humans have largely died out and self aware humanoid robots no longer serve man. Robots are able to think independently and are able to reproduce. There were some interesting parts where the robots got 'high' by inserting sim cards with programming to give the robots a hall [...]

    If you took away the fact that nearly all the major characters are robots, this would be a Gothic-lite melodrama slightly enhanced with philosophical questions about existence. The fact of robots distills the question on why keep on living nicely, but I was largely disappointed in the novel overall. Maybe I missed an important ingredient, but I prefer the simple delight of the previous robot book I read by Deb Install.

    I wanted to respond to a comment someone made under reviews, but it wouldn't let me, so here it is:I also had a problem with the portrayal of female characters unfortunately this injustice is recurrent in literature but I nonetheless was fairly moved by this book. I haven't read wuthering heights yet-- perhaps that would change my opinion, but I found the partial removal from humanity to illustrate the human experience quite compelling.

    Winter’s tale of lonely robots finding meaning in their existence is a lovely treat. It’s a thoroughly enjoyable hybrid of Philip K. Dick and Madeline Ashby that treats its electrical characters with love and compassion.Read more at the Redeblog.

    What would happen if humans build self-aware robots? What if they can then build other robots? What would they think of humans? What kind of society would they build; they are physically indestructible, unlike humans, don't have the same physical needs as humans. Are they then better than humans? And most importantly, if they no longer serve humans, what is their purpose? Why are they here and what are they to do instead?

    It seemed like a book I would like. It is a world in which robots are self aware and able to reproduce. Humans are dying out. Some robots love their human creators, and others resent them. What's not to like?Well, an uninteresting story with unbelievable situations and not likeable characters. And nothing really happens. So, boring and unintersting--a double whammy. I gave up and didn't finish it.

    I received this book through a giveaway. There were moments I thought I was really going to connect and love the story, but then I'd lose the momentum. I honestly think this just wasn't my type of book, but to the right person, it would be amazing.
